Bannisters Hotels today confirmed plans to expand their portfolio and open a new coastal boutique hotel — Bannisters Pavilion — on December 1st, 2015.
Building from the success of Bannisters by the Sea, including the Day Spa and Rick Stein Restaurant — the new Bannisters Pavilion will be Australia’s most anticipated boutique hotel opening.
The new boutique hotel will offer 33 stylish guest rooms and 2 luxurious penthouse suites, with a stunning backdrop of eucalyptus trees. The hotel is set back from Mitchell Parade and Beach Road, steps away from Mollymook Beach which is famous for its natural beauty, surf breaks, and unspoilt coastline.
A highlight of Bannisters Pavilion will be the expansive rooftop lined with sun beds, umbrellas, private lounge spaces, a bar-and-grill and spectacular suspended pool, providing the ideal coastal getaway.
The rooftop was designed to allow guests to seamlessly move between the pool, bar-and-grill and lounge areas to take full advantage of the food & beverage options, available from noon. Food will be inspired by Mediterranean, Southern Californian and Mexican cuisines, complemented by seasonal cocktails, craft beers and an Antipodean-focused wine list.
Bannisters Pavilion is a collaboration between owner Peter Cosgrove, architect Tony Freeman (Molnar Freeman), interior designers Mia Ward (Wiwa Design), Romy Alwill (Alwill Interiors) and landscape designer William Dangar.
Situated just 100 metres from the beach, the design ethos focuses as much on the eucalyptus trees as its stunning aqua backdrop. “Design inspiration was drawn from the natural beauty of the area and represents accent colours from both forest-and-sea,” said Romy Alwill.
“Think earthy, modern, edgy-but-refined and very light, open contemporary spaces. There is also a nuance of Scandinavian design with light timber, dark charcoal and soft brass trimmings.”
Bannisters Pavilion represents an extraordinary tourism project for Mollymook Beach and the NSW South Coast, a blossoming region only a three-hour drive from Sydney and two-and-a-half hours from Canberra.
